Charlie Williamson, chief scout, who spoke to the media after Saturday’s FA Trophy defeat to Notts County, said: “The injury to Luke was a real bad one which he has had an operation so fingers crossed it is not as bad as what we first thought but it is going to be a lengthy period out for him.

“Without being able to put a date on it I would have thought it would more or else be season over (for him).

“I am not 100 per cent sure but I would have thought that would be the case.

“I think Mark Crossley has had chance to speak to him.

“He will be on a downer because he has managed to force his way back in the team.

“It was a freakish injury.

“Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery for him.”

After his injury Coddington wrote on Twitter: “Words can’t express how gutted I am. Fully focussed on getting back on the pitch as soon as I can. Thanks for all your support.”
